Concluding observations of the Committee on the
Elimination of Racial Discrimination

Saint Lucia


158. At its 1258th meeting, on 10 March 1998, the Committee reviewed the implementation of the Convention. The Committee noted with regret that the initial report, which was due in 1991, had not been submitted.

159. The Committee also noted with regret that Saint Lucia had not responded to its invitation to participate in the meeting and to furnish relevant information. The Committee decided that a communication should be sent to the Government of Saint Lucia setting out its reporting obligations under the Convention and urging that the dialogue with the Committee should be resumed as soon as possible.

160. The Committee suggested that the Government of Saint Lucia might wish to avail itself of the technical assistance offered under the advisory services and technical assistance programme of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, with the aim of drawing up and submitting an updated report drafted in accordance with the reporting guidelines by the fifty­third session of the Committee.
